Position: Executive Director
Very excited to be celebrating our 40th Anniversary with current and former CASP families and staff at Lawn on D in October. This is my 20th year as Executive Director and I still enjoy building a sense of community for CASP staff and families through our Movie Night, Family Fest, Mystery Dinner, and Musicals that take place during the year. I'm very proud of the CASP staff for providing opportunities for over 180 students in kindergarten through fifth grade to explore, grow, and create in a safe and welcoming environment!
In my free time I enjoy the beach, reading, time with family, traveling and working in my gardens.

This is my tenth year working for CASP and I was a CASP parent for six years before that. My son, Elias, is a student at Berklee College of Music and has fond memories of both Cabot and CASP. One of my favorite things about working at CASP is watching the enthusiasm and dedication of the staff as they prepare to work with the kids each day. They're a fun, creative, energetic bunch and they make the program awesome!

Carly is excited to be returning to her 18th year at CASP! Directing CASP musicals is a highlight of each year, as it allows her to share her love of theatre with students. Outside of CASP Carly loves spending time outdoors with her two sons, Caleb and Nathan! She also loves reading, movies, and the beach! Each year Carly and her family participate in events sponsored by the Alzheimer's Association to raise funds and awareness for people and caregivers affected by Alzheimer's. Her commitment to ending Alzheimer's is inspired by her wonderful Dad living with the disease.

Hi, my name is John Vigneau. This is my first year at CASP! I am originally from Wayland, Massachusetts. I attended The George Washington University in D.C, and City College New York, where I studied Western Literature/Arts. I have been an educator for many programs in D.C, New York, and Massachusetts, working with kids ranging from K1 to 8th grade. My absolute favorite thing to do is hike on mountains and in forests, and then write about the experience. My favorite color is green; my favorite musical is 'Into The Woods' (big surprise); and my favorite flavor is chocolate. I also enjoy painting and playing guitar. I look forward to getting to know the awesome folks here at CASP:)
